Project Hustle, the crowdfunding-inspired program by vitaminwater, held a nationwide search for aspiring entrepreneurs, artists-in-training, dreamers and future film directors to find the next idea that breaks the status quo, glass-ceiling, or simply, the Internet.
Each finalist has the opportunity to see whether their dreams can become reality and the chance to win up to a total of $500,000 (across ten finalists) to bring them to life. The top ten best and brightest ideas were chosen in five categories: music, film, fashion, art and technology.
Beginning July 1 through 31, vitaminwater will put the power into the public’s hands to decide which of these finalists will potentially have their projects funded up to $50,000 each.
To fund projects, participating vitaminwater and vitaminwater zero bottle caps will contain a code that people can enter online through the campaign’s website. Each code holds a specific “virtual dollar” value, which can be allocated to one of the ten finalists’ projects.
“Our ten finalists are some of the best and brightest creators in the nation, and we can’t wait to see how their projects come to life. vitaminwater began as a small start-up in Queens, so we understand that hard work pays off, Project Hustle is our way of supporting these enterprising artists at the beginning of their journey, relentlessly hustling towards and pursuing their dreams.”
